    ... where there are almost as many bike paths as there are roads, guiding locals and visitors alike under canopies of trees to shady

    retreats, parks and beaches all over the island. And thats just the beginning.

    With school out and summer finally here, June is the perfect time to try some adventurous activities with your friends and family. Whether its parasailing or paddle boarding, testing out a new electric bike, going on a fishing charter or moonlight kayaking tour, theres bound to be something new for you to try.

    But it doesnt all have to be a rush! Be sure to relax on Hilton Head Islands sandy shores, dine out at some of the beachfront restaurants and enjoy a sunset boat cruise. Or you can ride around Hilton Head Island at your leisure, exploring the bike paths that run on bridges over marshes and under majestic live oak trees.

    June is one of the most exciting months on the island with all kinds of activities and special events going on every evening. HarbourFest finally returns to Shelter Cove Harbour and Summer Jams kicks off in the Shelter Cove Community Park. From outdoor concerts, fireworks and festivals to a special summer production of Big Fish the musical by the SSTI, there is bound to be some-thing to please everyone. Be sure to check out our Calendar of Events to find out what you want to do this month!

    In this issue of Island Events, discover what makes dolphins delicate with Jessie Renew and find out why cobia are so curious with Captain Miles Altman. But its not all about the underwater life in this issue. Kathleen McMenamin tells us a little bit about the yellow crowns spotted around marshes and up in the trees at the Sea Pines Forest Reserve, while Doug Weaver lets us know about some family golf activities at Palmetto Dunes and Georgene Mortimer explains how to pair different styles of barbeque with wine.

    We hope all of our listings are helpful in guiding you to some of the very best that the island has to offer.
